Our Debating lesson plan prepares students to describe the debate process, follow rules of debate, participate in a debate, and assess debate performances. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with another student on an assignment in which they choose a topic, research different sides, and then debate it, bringing them through each step of preparing and participating in a debate and strengthening their public speaking skills. Students are also asked to answer true or false questions about debates.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to describe the debate process, follow rules of a debate, participate in a debate, and assess debate performances. The students will also be able to write an opinion piece to use as a starting point for a future debate.

    Excellent resources and lessons

    I really appreciate the Clare don lessons. They are well put together and I do t have to worry about erroneous information or errors in the lessons. They provide the lesson, the reading text, a place for notes, extra resources if you want to dig deeper, AND a list of standards. I am so appreciative of this resource. It really helps support my teaching to have a place I can trust for ready made, quality lessons.

    Love them

    They are great, especially through these hard times due to the stay at home orders.
